Group Coaching Sessions:

 … work directly with Cynthia (and amazing guest experts)

4 x times per month on live video chats!

At the beginning of every month, we host a Goal Setting Workshop. Join Cynthia to get crystal clear on your vision and how to make it your reality. This is the perfect place to work through any blocks you have and dream big in a supportive environment. Feel free to bring a hot cup of tea or beverage of choice  these goal setting sessions are thirsty work!

In the middle of each month, we hold a Group Coaching Q&A Session. Join Cynthia and team every month as we make our way through any questions you have about intentional communities. 

All sessions are online and are hosted at a time that’ll work with everyone’s time zone… but don’t worry: all sessions are recorded, so you can watch the replay in your own time too.

The journey to community can come with many ups and downs, as well as new discoveries about yourself and what is possible to create… sound stressful… and exciting???

You deserve to live the life you imagine in a supportive, vibrant, and conscious community. It’s totally possible. Let’s work together to ensure you get there!

Community Finders share their sucess:

Cynthia was masterful. She helped me clarify the intentional communities that fit me, better get to know them, and finally choose one that I’m now a member of. She also raised my cultural understanding of community living to help me launch a new chapter of my life. I have no doubt anyone in a community journey will find great value in her guidance. She is also a deeply warm thoughtful soul to work with.


With expertise, humanity, and intuition, Cynthia asked targeted and guided questions that helped lead me to define and refine what I am seeking in a community. She is personable, easy to relate to and steadfast in her knowledge of intentional communities. I wholeheartedly recommend her to help guide you in your search for a well matched community!
